Recipes: Mississippi Roast

November 18, 2014


Brace yourselves for this, folks. Because it packs big flavor and your taste buds are in for an experience.

My mouth is watering as I type this because this roast is that melt in your mouth good. It’s also about as easy as it can get. Not good in the kitchen? Not a problem with this recipe. As long as you can operate a can opener to open a can of Campbell’s Soup and know how to turn on a slow cooker, you’ll be able to impress even the most sophisticated of palates.
